The larger of the two black cartridges is used for text only printing.

The saller cartridge is used for black in graphic images or pictures.

This saves you color ink . It allows you to put the black ink on the image without making the color inks blend the black ink.

The needed answer is how to tell the printer to print black without the large black cartridge. Don's response really doesn't help. Hopefully, he can tell us more.

I cannot get the yellow colour to print either as a test print or full copies. I have cleaned the heads, checked ink levels and even replaced the yellow cartridge again but with no success.


Try the following steps.
1) remove the ink cartride and ckeck for damages
2) remove the ink cartridge and replace it securly.
Else the ink cartridge is faulty.

Error 5...ink cartridge is not recognized after refilling


Clean the contact point of the cartridge to the printer before placing it, then **** some ink in the cartride by a cyringe to lessen the level of ink inside the cartridge. full ink cartridges encounter this error because the absorver inside the cartride overflows.

Why it can't print?


It won't print if your ink cartridge is empty. Check the black and white and also the color cartrides by doing the following:

1. Slide your hand underneath the front cover and open up the case.

2. Find your ink cartrides usually located on the left on the inside of the casing.

3. Gently pull up (usually) on the cartridge and take it out and shake it. You will know if it is empty or full when you shake it. If the color is full but the black and white is out that is probably the problem. Many printers won't work if the black and white cartridge is empty because that's usually the primary color.

4. Go to Walgreen's or a similiar store and purchase a new cartridge and then just reverse the steps putting it back in. Make sure you take note where each cartride is located when taking them out and put them in their correct position when you put them back in.

This should solve your problem and you should be printing again in no time flat!

I have an epson stylus SX600FW printer. i have used the compatible ink cartridges for months. just lately the black ink cartridge is not working when you want to print out and you have black and coloued...


The black catridge is depeleted. Some cartridges have a chip which is resetted after power up so you won't know how much ink is left.

On the other hand never mix orij. and compat. carts together.

pls. vote for better service... Thank you

Printer has new ink but won't print black tones there is ink on the heads and going in to the printer but for some reason not coming out on the paper


Good day SIr/Maam, the path blocking the ink will not reach the paper, usually the ink travels from the ink cartride to the carrier or cradle, then to the paper. since you mention that the cartride has ink, check also the carrier of the ink, it may have dried ink on it. you need to remove the carrier and clean the dried ink. If you cant remove the carrier, bring it to your dealer, they have inhouse techs there to help you out.

Cartridge recommendations


You can purchase Canon cartridges directly from Canon here. The BC-10 is a cartridge that prints with black ink only. The BCI-10 is the replacement ink tank for this cartridge (a new cartridge comes complete with an ink tank). The BC-11e is a cartridge that prints both black and color, and has two ink tanks, the BCI-11 black and BCI-11 color. A new BC-11e cartridge comes complete with two new ink tanks.
